Andes Crème De Menthe Cookies - Andes Mint Cookies

I love these yummy cookies --you can find the recipe on the back of the Andes creme de menthe bag. (which is already crushed andes-mints found next to the chocolate chips)

1/2 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 large eggs
1 (10 ounce) package Andes creme de menthe baking bits
2 2/3 cups all-purpose flour

1 Preheat oven to 350°F.
2 Blend butter, brown sugar, white granulated sugar, baking soda, baking powder, vanilla and eggs until ingredients are mixed.
3 Add Andes Baking Chips and mix.
4 Add Flour and continue to mix until all ingredients are well blended together.
5 Cover and chill in the refrigerator for 45-60 minutes.
6 Spoon out approximately 1 oz of dough per cookie.
7 Form a ball and then slightly flatten.
8 Place on non-stick baking pans and bake for approximately 8-10 minutes.
9 Cool on pans for 2 minutes, then remove

** I'll be totally honest with you...I cut out 1/3 cup of flour because the first batch was too tough(maybe it is my altitude though) and then I did NOT refrigerate them before baking because I was in a hurry and as long as you pull them out before they are golden, but done they are soft and marvelous! And do not skimp on the must use the whole package or they do not taste chocolately could try half a bag of mint and half bag of chocolate chips if you like to skimp like me.
